Genkaku Picasso, Vol. 2 by Usamaru Furuya
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'm really enjoying this series! Lighthearted and well-meaning. Some of the psychology isn't complex, but I've never seen such things addressed in manga before and I could see a teenage audience seeing the benefit of something like counseling, which ...more

Green Arrow by Jeff Lemire
Rate this book
Clear rating
Lemire is one of my favorite creators, so I went into this with high expectations. I did enjoy it, but I don't have a lot of background info on Green Arrow, and I love Lemire's slice-of-life stuff so much and this isn't really like that, I think I co ...more

Super-Dimensional Love Gun by Shintarō Kago
Rate this book
Clear rating
Let me be clear, most of the star rating is for the artwork. A lot of these stories felt like incomplete constructions around a single shocking notion. Some of it borders on humorous, most of it doesn't make sense, much of it was outside of the bound ...more

Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series by Walt Kelly
Rate this book
Clear rating
Don't be fooled by the cutesy artwork on the front. This is a war story, plain and simple. I was amazed at how complex the storytelling and relationships between characters is relative to how it presents itself (and relative to the fact that it was e ...more

I tried reading this straight through and it was laborious. I got maybe 20 pages in. Then I decided to try it one story at a time. That's how I would recommend approaching this incredible work: read it twice--the first time by reading each individual ...more

I *love* Kago's artwork and incredible imagination. Unfortunately, a lot of his work teeters on/surpasses my comfort level in terms of content. This, however, is a perfect combination of his bizarre creativity with content that is personally palatabl ...more

殺殺草紙 大江戸無残十三苦 by Shintarō Kago

I have mentioned this before, but will repeat my disclaimer: I am uncomfortable with Kago's more extreme work, and have struggled with exposing myself to it for the sake of the less severe elements (and typically wonderfully creative, satirical, and ...more

Jeff Jensen
“Sometimes I feel foolish for hoping she's alive. But then I feel guilty--as if being 'realistic' is giving up.
Other times, I think the uncertainty is the worst part. Alive or dead, I just need to know...
Or maybe that's just a bullshit rationalization. Because I know the day you come here to tell me that she's dead will be the worst day of my life.”
Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story

Matthew Loux
“Bums playing strip poker with a robot. Unsettling. Thanks for showing me.”
Matthew Loux, The Time Museum

Nikki Grimes
“I watch myself, like some stranger, rise and march right over to sit beside my old enemy, because you tell me your plan for her includes something nicer than a lonely life.”
Nikki Grimes, The Watcher

Alexander Chee
“Hate is love on fire, set out to burn like a flare on the side of the road. It says, stop here. Something terrible has happened. Envy is like, the skin you're in burns. And the salve is someone else's skin.”
Alexander Chee, Edinburgh

“If the world can turn into this, if we can turn around and find entire schools full of children gone, towns emptied overnight and no one saw a thing...
Then tomorrow we may also wake up and find the rain has ceased to fall and the wine has all gone sour and we do not recognize our own faces.
If today is possible, then anything is possible and nothing matters.”
Kathryn Immonen, Moving Pictures
